Trading activities were on Tuesday grounded at the popular Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos, as traders protested the installation of female and male market leaders “Iyaoloja” and “Babaloja” respectively in the hub.
The protesters who spoke with newsmen argued that the Hub was not a regular market and as such would be out of place to impose male and female heads on the market.
They contended that there was no correlation between what the market represents and the leaders.
An Information Communication Technology (ICT) Engineer, Wasiu Agbaje who spoke to newsmen, said, “What does the Iyaoloja and Babaloja have to offer in Computer Village, what value are they going to add to the hub? And what technological innovations are they bringing?
‘“The computer village is not like any other street market where pepper and other things are sold. It is an international technological hub and it should be treated as such,” he said.
